Stevo for England! with Darren Stevens
Season 10, Ep 5: Is he the first live-streaming superstar? The cricket world turned to a dodgy video feed from a gale-struck Canterbury as Darren Stevens produced one of the more audacious innings in the first-class game. Fifteen sixes later, he nearly reached a double ton while his batting partner made 1 run. It was just the latest in a series of scarcely believable episodes in an unusual cricketing life, having turned into a bowler at 35 years of age and still playing at 45. He joins the Final Word to talk through all of it.
Also! Friend of the show and sometime co-host Isabelle Westbury joins us to discuss a week of major stories about the treatment of women players by the Indian board, and we're back with some vintage Winnie News and a brand new Milk Round.
